We envision ourselves as an exceptional institution of higher education.
Columbia College will continue to provide comprehensive, exemplary educational programs and services which respond to the individual learning needs of our students and the collective economic and cultural needs of the diverse communities we serve.
Columbia College will be a center for transformational learning promoted through critical and creative thinking that is open to change and personal growth; civic, environmental, and global awareness and engagement; and individual and collective responsibility. We will adopt a holistic approach to promote a culture of support for student learning across the institution.
Columbia College will use effective technologies and showcase facilities to enhance teaching and learning. Our vision will be realized through outstanding employees who adhere to high standards of excellence while working in partnership with those we serve.
We envision ourselves developing a passion and capacity for lifelong learning.
